9780711232419: The Stick Book: Loads of things you can make or do with a stick

" while many projects have tangible payoffs a sun clock, musical percussion sticks, magic wands and charcoal pencils pleased both the boy and me each project seldom requires more than a page of description, even when providing actual learning opportunities within the fun.” - Dallas News

The stick is a universal toy. Totally natural, all-purpose, free, it offers limitless opportunities for outdoor play and adventure and it provides a starting point for an active imagination and the raw material for transformation into - almost anything! As New York's Strong National Museum of Play pointd out when they selected a stick for inclusion in their National Toy Hall of Fame, 'It can be a Wild West horse, a medieval knight's sword, a boat on a stream, or a slingshot with a rubber band . . .' In this book Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield offer masses of suggestions for things to do with a stick, in the way of adventures and bushcraft, creative and imaginative play, games, woodcraft and conservation, music and more.

Review:

'it is the most practical lessons this book can teach a young outdoors enthusiast (how to build shelters and sun clocks) that make The Stick Book something special'



This book, which offers over 70 interesting things to make or do with a stick, will open up a world of creativity: from fashioning a plain staff to wild weaving or making stick and paper lanterns. Simplicity and a deep satisfaction go together, as where two sticks and a piece of string achieve the sophisticated job of measuring the earth. There are loads of photographs to add inspiration. 



Masses of suggestions for bushcraft, creative and imaginative play, games, woodcraft, conservation, music and more. Having someone's eye out is not included.



Fed up with your children's demands for the latest electronic gadgets? Why not give them a stick instead?

Ideal for entertaining all ages.

This is an excellent addition to the authors' other books on outdoor play.

A great book to encourage outdoor play and exploration at very little cost!

When I leafed through the book, I was so enthralled that I immediately planned a den-building party and picnic for my daughter's tenth birthday.
